About Me

Hi! I’m Erica, the blogger behind “For the Sake of Cake.”










I’m a 20-something high school English teacher who lives in southeastern Pennsylvania. Teaching (& grading!) takes up a lot of my time, but when I do have free time I enjoy spending it with my husband, Chris, my family, my friends, & my pug, Stewie.

“For the Sake of Cake” will document my “adventures” in balancing an intense love of cake (& all things sweets-related for that matter) with other, healthier choices. I recently started eating healthier & exercising more consistently (& subsequently lost a little bit of weight!) for my August 6, 2011 wedding & hope to continue these healthy habits as Chris & I start our lives together!


The purpose of this blog is not so much to present my “daily eats” (even though I love reading blogs like that!) but to share fun & tasty recipes, some of my meals & workouts, & other aspects of my life that I deem exciting enough for others to read about. Thanks for stopping by!

      Thanks so much! It’s getting stressful because we’re so close (32 days!) but I’m trying to enjoy it because I know I’ll miss it too! Congrats on your recent wedding as well! 🙂

    I saw you on Cait’s Plate and had to come say hello seeing as both of our blogs have “cake” in the title. 🙂

    I can totally relate! I love making healthy foods when I’m at home but once that brownie or cupcake is in front of me I just want to down the whole batch! I look forward to learning from you!

      That’s exactly how I am! So finally I realized if I’m going to indulge so much in sweets, I need to be mindful of what else I eat!
